What can cause a Maltipoo to be so small?
Let’s look at the common reasons why a Maltipoo can be so small and when to seek help.
Why is my Maltipoo so small?
A Maltipoo can be so small because of poor diet, illness, effects of puppy teething, and genetics. It is normal for Maltipoos to have a slow growth rate and appear small with a healthy weight.
